According to Wine Spectator, “Chardonnay from California is America’s favorite white wine.” This grape is delicious, dependable, and increasingly diverse in style. Today’s offer, the 2017 Metrick Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley, is a pure expression of Chardonnay and the Santa Maria Valley. This true gem will captivate your senses and leave you craving for more.

Metrick's owner, Alex, is a dedicated entrepreneur with a rich background in the wine industry. His commitment to creating fresh, elegant wines that reflect their vineyards' unique character is at the heart of the Metrick philosophy. With a focus on minimal intervention winemaking, the grapes are allowed to speak for themselves, resulting in wines that showcase their full potential and glory.

Sourced from a historic vineyard with sandy soils and blessed by the cool coastal winds of the Pacific, this stripped-down Chardonnay encapsulates the essence of the Santa Maria Valley. With stunning freshness, delicate tropical fruit notes, and a mid-weight body. It’s fermented and aged in stainless steel drums for 10 months on the fine lees with minimal stirring, to give the wine this extraordinary complexity. This vibrant white wine will steal your heart from the very first sip. It's a perfect companion for indulging in oysters, sushi, ceviche, or creamy pasta, and at a price like this, (<$20/bottle!) it will quickly become your summer go-to!
